Popular Aurora Neighborhoods

Aurora has dozens of neighborhoods with unique personalities and attractions. Some of the city's most popular neighborhoods include Shenandoah, Tallyn's Reach, Heritage Eagle Bend and Meadow Hills.

Shenandoah is particularly attractive because of its location near Cherry Creek State Park and I-225. Residents can stay in touch with nature by visiting the park's multi-use trails, managed prairies and 880-acre lake. The park even offers facilities for camping and target practice.

Tallyn's Reach attracts affluent residents who want to live farther from the hustle and bustle of Denver. The suburb, which shares boundaries with Heritage Eagle Bend and Saddle Rock Golf Club, offers a refuge from life's hectic moments. The area also has good neighborhood parks, a golf course and a reservoir that's open for boating, swimming, scuba diving and other recreational activities.

Studio Rental Prices in Aurora

Renting a studio apartment helps single people and couples keep their expenses low. Since the apartments are small, residents don't have to fill them with much furniture or decorations. The small size also prevent monthly bills from getting out of control. Plus, studio apartments are easy to keep clean!

The typical studio apartment in Aurora costs about $800 per month. The price that you pay, however, will depend on which neighborhood you choose. A studio apartment that costs $800 in City Center may cost $1,000 in Tallyn's Reach.

With a city as large and diverse as Aurora, you should explore apartments in several neighborhoods to make sure you choose an option that fits your budget and lifestyle.

Best Restaurants and Bars in Aurora

Aurora's culinary scene changes constantly to accommodate new trends. You can find some of the most popular restaurants along I-225 in the City Center and City Center North neighborhoods. The area offers everything from authentic Asian foods to freshly grilled hamburgers. Since City Center isn't a very walkable area, most people drive to the neighborhood restaurants. Practically every neighborhood, however, has a locally owned place where residents can dine near their homes.

Aurora also has a large number of bars and pubs where residents can meet new people and unwind after work. Most of the bars serve beers and spirits brewed by other companies. A handful of breweries, however, make their own beer. Anyone looking for unique flavors should visit breweries that cater to locals.

Studio apartments in Aurora make great homes for young professionals who want to enjoy the quiet of a suburb without living too far from Denver. By living in Aurora, you get the best of both worlds. It's a convenient, fun city that gives you plenty of room to grow.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
